Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: More on the DEAD...historical place & future directions

Yup - I'm your grand pa. That's one the advantages of old age - you get to say 'heh heh heh, I remember when...'.

And I totally agree - it was the live experience that sucked me in, and it's the same that I try to recapture in my headphones. I was lucky to be in front of it and it still captures me.

I've always thought that the Dead were the psychedelic Benny Goodman group with one twist. As opposed to Boppers, they figured out a way to make folks dance to some really twisted music.
